    How does the PistolProbe compare to the Garret pinpointer?

    go to harbor freight and buy a centech, works like a whites bullseye, when it quits buy another and repeat until you can buy a garrett pro pointer, does any one use the nickle trick for extending the range of a propointer?

Im trying to go and cheap as possible for now until i really get the hang of it and have more time to hunt. I saw a video of a guy who used a studfinder as a pin pointer any one else doing this? thanks
    Pinpointers are good I know it but I still aint got one. Cuts recovery time in half at least, especially on brown coins you cant see easily. Garrett all the way, well worth the price. Harbor Freight gets decent reviews, I might try that for my first one. I tend to lose stuff like magnets and probes and flashlights, even diggers.

    For near the surface coins my ProPointer can pick up the coins up to several inches deep. I was detecting with just my ProPointer underneath some virgin benches and finding coin after coin. Even though it cost 3/4 the price of my Ace 250, it was so worth it. The hobby is way more enjoyable with a pinpointer!

    I depend on the pro pointer to much to loose it. Now I dig everything that sounds good and don't worry about trash. It is so fast I can find more and dig trash too. Finally I can pop coins, Pulltabs out of the ground with a screwdriver. The trick is knowing where it is.

    Hey skipperdun- what is the "nickle trick"?

    probably talking about this...take any coin

    press against the Garrett Pro body starting at about the level of the on/off switch (I use my right index finger and turn unit on with my thumb)
    slowly slide the coin in the direction of the tip until you JUST START to hear it chirp
    back it off just a tad til silent and hold it there
    My unit can detect at between 2 1/2 and 3" with this technique. Your mileage may vary.
